Can the Rav shelit”a please tell me if I have to set aside tzedakah on money left to me by my late mother?
The custom of giving maaser (one tenth to tzedaka) applies to all “income,” including money received by inheritance. However, if one inherited property one does not have to give maaser, unless one sells it in which he should give maaser of it’s value.
May you hear only good news!
